    It is extremely painful for our hearts to hear such sad news about our beloved King Mihai’s poor health. Let us hope God will help His Majesty fight and finally defeat this terrible disease. Let us pray that Heir Princess Margareta, as fully equipped as She is to perform Her Royal duties as requested by Her own August Father, do it, for the time being, only until our King regains His health. But eventually Princess Margareta will become our Queen some day. Long live our King!
